Frank Hamilton Fav. Historical Story-songs (87* d) RE: Fav. Historical Story-songs 13 Oct 99


One of the things that I've noticed is that supposedly historical songs may or may not be factually accuraate. One of my faves is the American folk song "Jay Gould's Daugher", the daughter of the famous railroad robber baron. His daughter is depicted as being spoiled but Sam Hinton tells us that in fact his daughter was a well-known philanthropist. I believe I can trust folk ballads as much as I do for most history books for historical accuracy.
